GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Definite Article?
The word 'the' functions primarily as a definite article in the grammar of the English language. "The" is the most common word in the English language. 'The' is a word in english grammar to express a noun. 'The' always begins the expression of a noun. eg. It's 'the' end of 'the' world 'The' is very commonly used and is used when talking about something which exists either as a human concept or a actual thing. eg. The time is 9:40 am. eg. The earth is the most exciting thing ever. "The" has variable pronunciation. It is generally pronounced with a long e (IPA /i:/) before a word starting with a vowel sound, and with a schwa before a word beginning with a consonant sound, i.e., as or respectively.
